I was referred by the CCDH Program to contact you and apply for a speech therapy grant. I am a single mother, my daughter’s name is Priscilla Gonzalez. She is 10 years old, and she is a special child who needs speech therapy. Through the years, it has been very difficult for me to get the therapies that my daughter needs because the medical insurance does not cover that type of therapy.
I cannot afford to pay for them myself. Usually, after a session of therapy, there is a one year waiting period, and after that year, it is necessary to go on a waiting list, which could take for one, two, or more years to get another opportunity. Now, with the financial crisis, the local government has cut on many programs that used to offer therapy for special children. I greatly appreciate that I was able to get speech therapy for my daughter through the Act4Me program.
I would like to thank you and your staff for helping my daughter through the program to have a better opportunity in life.
